Rollo, I don't think anyone expects Margaret to scratch your eyes out because you're gay (even if you make it known to her that you are).

The point is that people have a right to dislike public figures based on public comments they make and public displays of behaviour.

For example, is it fair to dislike Hewitt for his display of overt/covert (whichever way you see it) racism during his match against Blake at US Open '01?

I don't understand why people think that Court should be immune to criticism because she's a great tennis player.
